Personally I don't have any memories of the specific stalls that I frequented as a kid but I have been going back to this place recently for this one stall that sells one hell of a fried "sang meen". This stall is stall #47, Gerai Thong Kee.
So what's "sang meen"? You know the noodle you get with wantan noodles? That's the one... maybe :) I don't know for sure but they are both very similar. However I swear "sang meen" usually has a very eggy taste to it while your typical wantan noodles do not.
This picture doesn't do the dish any justice. This stall serves the best fried "sang meen" I have ever eaten (of course, if you know any better I would love to hear from you). I'm not sure how to describe it but the feeling of eating something fried, that looks dry but is actually a little wet and has an eggy aftertaste with lots of crunchy vegetables is quite unbeatable.
There's a satay stall nearby that sells pork satay. The pork satay rocks as well. I can't figure out why business isn't better for the satay stall.
Aside from that, the Medan Selera is also famous for it's ais kacang drinks (though I personally have not tried them recently). If it's your first time there you might also be surprised to find that food court also has Indian and Malay tenants... very muhibbah.
